Earned respect - With his style, he got himself a spot on the Rattpack, and was approached by Def Jam Recordings.
Short name - Originally called Psychological, he dropped the Psychic part and stuck just with Logic.
Great opener - Opened for large names such as Ludacris, Pitbull, Method Man and Redman. Who's da man?
Found the gold in so much mud - Troubling youth didn't bring him down. He managed to raise and follow his dreams, although he came from a home where his dad was not much around, his mother had drug problems and his brothers were drug dealers. All this kept him authentic and connected to his fans that went through the same issues.
Solomon - At 13, he met Solomon Taylor who would become his mentor. At the same time he watched Tarantino's Kill Bill, Volume 1, who would spark his interest in hip hop.
Clean - Doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, no weed. Used to do them all heavily when he was younger.
Bringing genres together - Although very good at hip hopping, he says that most of his inspiration comes from Sinatra.
Prodigy - Named one of the top 5 "The Young Rappers" on the Ranker list
Gaithersburg High School - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA
"You can put your everything into a relationship, but that doesn't mean you're going to get back what you give. When I created my first mixtape, I realized everything I put in my music - the hours, the lyricism, the time, the grind, pain, sweat, blood, tears - I get it back. I see it."
"The thing is, I feel like so many artists, well, not really artists but so many people think they can rap and they just want a deal and the glitz and the glamour and the women but they don't understand that all I do and want to do is rhyme."
"I think I've sacrificed so much from my relationships to my friendships to my family; I've literally sacrificed my entire life and I'm honest."
"I don't drink; I don't smoke weed. I used to smoke; I used to be a pretty big pothead when I was younger, but I don't smoke. I might have an occasional glass of champagne."
"I love all subgenres within hip-hop and all genres of music and I think that's what allows me to make the music that I do, because of my appreciation for the music."
"I show up 20 minutes early to business meetings and interviews and stuff. I'm so business-oriented. I run my own company. I have employees. I fund everything. I pay for my tours. It's not like I have anybody to release the burden on."
"I saw the positive in the situation, even as a kid. Of course, there have been times that I've broken down or gone through a bunch of shit or freaked out or had doubt. That's completely normal, but you do your best to look at the positive in the situation. Even when everything gets completely bleak."
"I have a strong relationship with God, but I'm not religious. My mother was overly religious and almost like brainwashing, Bible-thumper kind of crazy. I feel like I would be like a Satanist out of spite."
